Jong Oranje could only manage a 0-0 draw in Romania on Tuesday on a terrible pitch.

After the 2-1 victory against Belgium, Netherlands were looking for their second win of the week but they were without Brian Brobbey. Joshua Zirkzee started up front.

On terrible conditions, Zirkzee went close but his effort was cleared off the line. Just before the break, Xavi Simons fired just wide.

At the break, Erwin van de Looi made a triple change including the introduction of Thijs Dallinga. However, Netherlands did not threaten a winner and they nearly lost just before the end as Kjell Scherpen had to be alert to deny Jovan Markovic.

A draw to end the year for Netherlands U21’s, who are preparing for the European Championships next year.
